Stowing Portable Gasoline Generator

I am considering a Honda EU2000i portable gasoline generator for my Catalina 350. However, I have not decided how to safely stow the generator when not in use. I do plan to store gasoline containers on deck. I would appreciate feedback from those who stow portable gasoline generators on their boats. Do you stow it in a cockpit locker? If so, is that locker isolated from the rest of your boat, at least regarding fumes and vapors? If you stow the generator in a cockpit locker, do you drain the fuel tank or carburetor and/or run the carburetor dry before stowing? Thanks in advance.
